Some of you may have heard of “Harry Potter”. Best I can tell it is a fad that has been going on for about 10 years now. And because this little wizarding fellow is so popular, I’ve always avoided reading any of the books about him, or the movies that carefully document his life. In fact, my knowledge of Harry was limited to seeing the first movie once many years ago.
Well Tuesday night the 5th in the series of movies chronicling the life and travels of this young man was released, and I went and saw it because I agreed to go with Kelly. Well anyway, I found myself actually enjoying the movie, and after a fair amount of deep self examination, I decided to give the books a try.
And so it came to pass that today I finished the first Harry Potter book. And it was pretty good. It was an easy read, and I enjoyed it, and now I’m going to move onto the second. And then, if that one is any good, the third, and so on.
I’m not ready to call myself a fan. But maybe I’m just deluding myself. Maybe I just don’t want to admit that maybe I should have tried reading these years ago.
